Romaine's Ratings and Reviews
We are BIG fans of Romaines .. the renovations are beautiful .. welcoming and very nice trendy .. waiting area is awesome!!!!
FOOD.. another story .. very disappointed... starters .. calamari was full of batter .. why ruin a good a good thing ... it Used to be amazing
Next salad .. where is the Caesar that we loved .. were we the only ones who loved this?
Entrees.. oh boy! The shrimp now has a funky red sauce ..And the haddock was very dry and .. might be better as a fish and chip
Overall .. Romaines is no longer a fine dining restaurant it is more of a bar and you should go there expecting a burger or lighter fare ..it's something the area might need but you should not be paying the price of the older Romaines and receiving a lesser menu
We never minded spending a larger amount for dinner and a great bottle of wine when the food equaled what we paid .. but now I will still be a fan of Romaines but know that I should keep my food choices to the burger or fish tacos
They changed the look and the menu but they forgot to change the name .. not Romaines anymore
I would try this restaurant again because I got a bar plate hamburger which was not anything special but also not a full entree...my wife enjoyed her steak tip entree and desert creme brulee. I would try it one more time because overall I enjoyed my dinner experience.
I made a reservation 3 -4 weeks in advance. When we arrived we were seated at a table by a busy doorway to the private room. We asked the hostess for a booth and she moved us happily but somehow I assumed reserving that well in advance would have had a better table reserved for us. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating but it left me with a ??? as to why did I bother to make a reservation. The wait staff was excellent and the food was good.
Romaine's never dissapoints! Taking out clients from the Netherlands, was a success with a great waitstaff, excellent food. From Fish Tacos and Burgers to the Shrimp appetizer, crab cakes, Bolognese. The meal was loved by our guests and we were not rushed in any way. Another home run by Romaine's!
Always enjoy dining at Romaine's! With their ever-changing menu and classics you can always try something new or fall back to an old favorite. Waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable, dining is never rushed and you always receive great value. Erin and Richard continue to run a fine restaurant that I will go back to again and again.
My wife's duck with dumplings and my veal osso bocco were perfect. Particularly on a cold winter night. And the kale salad was a perfect start, along with well prepared and served drinks. I am taking a star off on the ambiance side, mainly because the place remains a few decibel levels too loud. Perhaps that will be fixed when the restaurant closes for a few weeks to upgrade the environment. It will be hard to upgrade the food, though a few more bar or appetizer plates would be welcome. Oh, and some of the cajun cooking the Romaines are famous for.
Overall, a good experience. We requested a booth, none available. The restaurant was busy, noise level was not bad. We have been a few times and find it to be consistently good. The salmon special was delicious. The dessert was perfect for 4 people ro share.
The food preparation was fabulous as always. The cauliflower augratin delicious. This was a birthday celebration for my niece. Our only complaint was the slow service. Our server and was very slow. We waited almost a half hour for dessert to arrive. I dine there frequently and was disappointed with the service.
It was New Year's Eve, We got there about 15 minutes before our reservation and our table was ready. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed. The food was delicious. The only negative comment would be about my drink. I ordered a cocktail with tonic water and it was flat, they made me a second drink and it was also flat. We all agreed we would go back.
